CSU Art Students in Ultra Mega Art Show

June 11, 2014


Fri 6/13 @ 7pm

This Friday, Doubting Thomas’ invitation-only group exhibition Ultra Mega Art! highlights the best and brightest emerging artists from Cleveland State’s Art Department. CSU’s Art Department is two years into a brand-new chapter in their legacy. With the opening of their new Arts Campus and The Galleries at Cleveland State in Downtown’s Theatre District, the future is looking very bright at the corner of Euclid Avenue and E. 13th Street.

The Galleries at Cleveland State recently hosted the student-organized Student Show and Merit Scholar Exhibition — the second in their beautiful new space next to PlayhouseSquare on Euclid Avenue. The shows featured nearly 100 works by dozens of students in photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, graphic design, video and more.

During the exhibitions’ run, Doubting Thomas’ owner Theresa Boyd and Ultra Mega Art!’s organizer, Shepherd Weita, quietly visited the gallery and personally selected their favorites. A total of 9 emerging students were invited to participate in a group exhibition at Doubting Thomas for this month’s Tremont Art Walk.

“We are so excited to see this show come together,” says Weita. “It shines with the freshness of new talent and demonstrates the increasing influence of Cleveland State University’s Art Department on our local art community.”

Ultra Mega Art! features the work of Dunya Abrahim, Oni Allen, Christina Casal, Elisabeth Dare, Wade Gagich, Jaco Jucutan, Ben Rodriguez, Omid Tavakoli and Liz Trenholme.

Redheaded Peckerwood Review

June 2, 2014


The Transformer Station’s big spring exhibition, “Redheaded Peckerwood,” is a difficult and uncomfortable experience. It could hardly be otherwise.

In photographs, hand-painted signs, magazine clippings and actual pieces of evidence, the exhibition retraces the trail of mayhem left by 19-year-old Charlie Starkweather, who murdered 11 people in Nebraska and Wyoming during the winter of 1957-58, while accompanied by his 14-year-old runaway girlfriend, Caril Ann Fugate.
